Trip was very long and can get quite exhausting. Itinerary was super well-organised from train, railway, cruise to bus. I personally thought the cruise could be omitted if anyone planned to do this on their own. The tour is a fantastic way to do Oslo to Bergen. I would recommend hiking / cycling after the Flam railway which is just GREAT!

Fast paced trip, lots of information in a short period of time. I was able to absorb it all and keep up. However, if you want to take your time and enjoy things more. This might not be the tour for you.

Agnis was amazing. He was very accommodating and even took me to see two stave churches.

Great experience just be prepared if the weather is cold. Beautiful fjord views!

Really great trip around the harbour and Oslo fjord
